HSMAI Helps | Tuesday, June 18 | All Day

Spend a little time connecting with your fellow attendees while giving back to our host city.

In partnership with Clean the World, we will build 550 hygiene kits to leave behind for Minnesotans in need.

Spend as little as 5 minutes at this “Open House” volunteer opportunity to make an impact. Every minute counts as we prepare these valuable kits made of recycled soap, shampoo, and other left-over hygiene products from hotels throughout North America.

Made possible by Rainmaker & STR

Did you know?

More than 2 million bars of partially used hotel soap are thrown away every day in the United States.

According to the World Health Organization, millions of young lives could be saved with access to bar soap and hygiene education.

Participate in HSMAI Helps to:

BUILD BONDS: Making connections with other attendees that will reach far beyond your time at ROC.

PROVIDE HOPE and CHANGE LIVES: Giving much-needed hygiene products to people struggling to meet their family’s basic needs, and understanding how something so simple can have a profound impact on someone’s life.
